We said in our last issue that ITT had sold an ALQ pod system to Oman. In fact the ALQ-211(V)4 is an internal system that has been sold to Chile, Oman, Poland and Pakistan for their new-build F-16s. The (V)9 pod has parts commonality with other ALQ-211 versions, including the (V)4, but is specifically designed for older aircraft. A (V)9 pod launch customer announcement is expected from ITT Electronic Systems in the next few months.
